St. Thomas Food Pantry serves the corporal works of mercy by feeding the hungry. The pantry serves residents of Peoria Heights (those with zip code 61616). Persons who live in other zip codes are served by other food pantries in the area.
Our pantry is generally open on Mondays and Thursday from 9 am to 11 am. The pantry is closed on holidays and when the parish office is closed. Volunteers should arrive by 8:45 am to help with food distribution.
Volunteers are needed to help dispense food and lift grocery bags for clients. Volunteers are also needed to assist with picking up food for the pantry when needed. Call or email Rob Berg at [email protected] or 842-9088 to sign up for food distribution or to help with shopping/food bank.
Our pantry is funded by collections taken up on the first Sunday of the month, as well as through contributions to the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
